I have to admit that is quite a bit different than I was expecting from Capricorn, I would have expected something more similar to Picco/IDM but the 3 needle carb with the inserts is cool. The 2617 pipe is the pipe Daniele won the worlds with (or at least that efra #)

You are correct, it's by Sirio.

The engine packaging is very cheap, very domestic...... when I received the engine, the enigne was in a sandwiches bag. (This engine is the tuned version...... stock version only came with silver engine case and no modification) The modification is pretty humdrum...... no surprise. Lucky I knew engine modification......... this enigne must be re-worked.

Compare with my modified engine, Capricorn MUST work harder, at least on packaging. ;)

Blee just got back a reply from the owner what you have there is the pre production exactly what I received as well. The final packaging should be available in 2 weeks. just my 2 cents take the non modified version & do your own mods to it that way you can compare the performance between the 2.
I ran Sirio for more than 3 years & now running for capricorn Im happy with the performance from the CL.12E with the 2617 pipe & will give you some updates when I test it with the 2611 & also keep everyone informed on new products

Thank you for info......... however I didn't complain the packaging but I told the truth. :)

Also I don't mind the performance of tuned version or stock version, I will modifiy to my own standard anyhow. For my experince, I could modify the tuned version to a higher level definitely. I belive this tuned version will need less modification job also. ;)
